Triple Crown is a good series. Doesn't it have to be from a selected set of doubles and under a specific time limit each?
Next year I'll have 3 doubles via the rando series up here. I'm planning on the spring Super Rando series (200, 300, 400 and 600k) and then the summer/fall series up to 400k. So two 400s and a 600 will give me my 3 doubles. Heck, the 600 is almost a double double all by itself.
The 130 after the climb may sound tough, but the key with randonneuring is that you're not required to finish quickly. Most doubles I've seen start sweeping the course at 16 hours. A 300k is (minimum) 187 miles and you've got 20 hours to finish.
